side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.
